Yet another relatively quiet month on the legislative front. One could have expected some interest for us, with the Financial Intelligence Centre Act being signed, but the commencement date has not yet been determined, so we’ll leave that for a later date.
Yet another month of little activity on legislation which may impact our industry, although some previously announced amendments came into effect on 1 April 2017. While not having a direct impact on us, those involved in the property industry or who have clients who are involved, should take note of the draft Property Practitioners Bill, which looks at repealing the Estate Agency Affairs Act (see brief note below).
Welcome to the April edition of the Leppard Legislation Watch, after complaining in last month’s newsletter about the amount of legislation that is gazetted each month, and the difficulty in trying to stay up-to-date, this month’s newsletter is relatively short.
